Considering a degree in dairy?
The dairy industry is among New York State’s largest employers, with a great need for qualified managers and management of dairy farms and related businesses.
Our dairy management prepares you to manage a dairy operation from herdsman to owner – and every position in between.
SUNY Morrisville is committed to meeting the current and future needs of the dairy industry. Our state-of-the-art free-stall dairy facility houses 200 milking cows as well as an electronically enhanced milking parlor and a student-managed computer system. Also featuring two heifer barns, a calf barn and a show barn, the facility is entirely serviced by a plug-flow anaerobic digester that processes animal waste and produces electrical power.
The college’s 500 acres of cropland ensure a supply of forages for the herd.
Your study also will include “the Cornell Dairy Management Experience,” a one-semester residency through Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences where you enroll in upper-level courses in animal science and farm business management. Another semester will have you participating in the W. H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute’s Advanced Dairy Management Program in Chazy, New York.
Upon graduation, you will take pride in an industrious skillset that will drive your career.
